[SOLVED] On re-installation, Settings are not changing to default

Post by amitabha.kar »

Hi,

On re-installing, the settings from the previous installation still persists.

Specially, when I did an unattended installation with configuration listed in response.varfile, settings got locked and remained in locked state even after re-installation multiple times.

I have tried with clearing registry keys, restarting machine but no luck.

Any help is appreciated.

Regards,
Amitabha

Hi Amitabha

Yes this is the expected behavior.
If you want to reset your config to default you need to delete the deployment.properties file.
This file is located in your users home dir below ".config/icedtea-web"
